this won't be a threat. and i believe that local decisions should be supported by local funding. that's where the property tax comes in. but i also believe in targeted aid which is why i support a reversal of the claremont decision that has really destroyed local public policy making for education as well as local funding and destroyed the opportunity for the state to provide for targeted aid to help our cities and towns in that area. and then we need full funding of special education and other mechanisms that will lower the property tax burden. but in the end it's a decision made by the decision makers in the cities and towns about how much they spend. >> moderator: do you have a follow? >> mr. lamontagne, specifically, do you have a plan to provide property tax relief to new hampshire residents? lamontagne: first of all, i do, and i think what it is is bringing back economic recovery to new hampshire. as goes economic recovery, so will go more revenues for state government, for example, and local communities in terms of broadening the tax base. that is the way it works. and then loo

legislation with a republican from missouri to help the community colleges to turn our local work force training to be more attuned with local business needs. veterans told me that the job skills they acquired in the military that they wanted to put to work here at home. the only ohioan to have a full term on the veterans committee, we want to help. in the fall of 2008, i remember vividly number of conversations with small business owners with workers in the automobile industry. i saw the fear in his face and the anxiety in his voice that he worried about the plant closings. how can i provide for my family, pay my mortgage? how can my daughter continue her education at community college? so i went to work to come first with president bush in fall 2008 and then with president obama in 2009 with dick lugar, carl levin, senators from all over this part of the country. it's not just about the big assembly plants in toledo, but it's about components in brunswick, the steel and aluminum made in this city. we talk about the owner of the diner and the manufacturers. there are real problems, rea

cannot be dealing with every security request for merit local american outpost around the world. the president and vice president have more important work to do. to lay them at the foot of the president is not necessarily fair. it raises the level of presidential attention. president obama says we have strengthened security and have launched a full investigation into the attacks libya. those are the areas the president can do something. host: we have comments coming in on twitter with different opinions. host: this is from jerseygirlinpa. how much do you think the past will be brought up? or will that not be touched enough by the candidates. guest: romney will not raise it. he has distanced himself from the last republican president. how were early george w. bush' -- how rarely charge of the name has been bush's mentioned over the past few years. i think a lot of the issues have moved beyond the problems initiated under the last presidency. the real focus now, the arab spring, events in the middle east, events in asia -- these are particular to our period. i did not expect the t

, and local officials because they are going to be providing you with the best advice in terms of how to deal with this storm over the coming days. we've just had an excellent meeting with the fema team here, the various agencies that are in charge, including the department of defense, department of energy, and those that are going to need to respond very quickly. under craig fewgate's leadership at fema, we've had a chance to talk to the regional officials as well and i just had a phone call with the governors of potentially impacted states as well as some of the major cities in the region. at this stage, everybody is confident that the staging process, the prepositioning of presource, commodities, equipment that are going to be needed to respond to the storm are in place, but as craig has emphasized, this hasn't hit landfall yet, so we don't yet know where it's going to hit, where we're going to see the biggest impacts, and that's exactly why it's so important for us to respond big and respond fast as local information starts coming in. i want to thank hall the members of the team -- all th

a little bit of success in the congress when i was there resolving local issues when it comes to land it. the way to do it is to work with lotus -- local leaders to resolve those issues. the congressman's approach was to write to the president of the united states to ask him with a stroke of his pen to create a national monument without resolving any of the local issues that are still there. i do not think washington should be doing that and overriding local control and resolution here. those extremes in olfaction approaches do not work in the long term to resolve land disputes. >> actually, i was writing to the president at the behest of the whole coalition of local leaders, from the mayor of las cruces to many of the local clubs. one of the broadest bipartisan groups of supporters i have ever seen. i think we should listen to them. there is an overwhelming support to a new national monument. i am very happy to join with the local support and help make that happen. >> by denying the controversy exists is not make it go away. these 30 cattle growers that have grazing permits on the west
